For those who have a particular interest in the Buddhist Background to MBSR/MBCT, I have provided some articles.
Basic Buddhism focuses on the essential insights and teachings within Buddhism, and the essential principle of working with one’s mind. The second page offers a Model of Mindfulness from the Buddhist tradition and offers comparison Shapiro’s “Axiom of Mindfulness”, a highly influential model of mindfulness practice within MBSR and MBCT training. Lastly, I will summarise the theoretical rationale for the teaching of MBSR and MBCT. All the work is my own, and is fully referenced with appropriate links. Buddhist terminology used throughout is in Pali with English translation.
